"Who Died and Made you Pope? Peter, the Pope and all that Pomp"
Past Web Lecture on February 22nd
with Gregory DiPippo
Come and Discover:
If there is one thing above all else that has made Rome a place of pilgrimage and a holy city, it is without question the tomb of the Apostle St Peter, whom the Church holds to be the city’s first bishop and the first Pope.
For many centuries, the Popes were not only the spiritual rulers of the Eternal City, but also its civil rulers, and to a very large degree, it is to them that we owe both the preservation of Rome’s ancient heritage, and the glorious of the city as we know it today.
Our next talk in the “Keys to Religious Rome” series will discuss aspects of the history of the Papacy, both as the spiritual leader of the Catholic Church, and the leader in making Rome one of the most beautiful and admired cities in the world.
